Comfortable cottage in beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

Well furnished cottage at Wachesaw Plantation provided us with the perfection location to explore the Murrells Inlet area. The owner and cottage manager were responsive to our rental questions as well as staff at Wachesaw. Cleaning and paper products were amply supplied; the cottage is close to supermarkets, seafood stores, restaurants and other necessities. Particularly we enjoyed being near Brookgreen Garden, other preservation areas along Route 17 but in a quiet community.

Peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

It was great being back in Wachesaw - our home for 24 years. The cottage was absolutely beautiful, and well appointed with comfortable beds and relaxing space. The plantation is absolutely breath taking and we enjoyed walking the dog under those magnificent oak lined roads.

Thank you !

Wedding at Wachesaw Plantation

  • 3 of 5

We spent the weekend in Wachesaw Plantation for a wedding. It is a beautiful setting on the river, golf course surroundings, and beautiful greenery. We didn't spend much time in the cottage but what we did we felt the cottage was dated and dark. It was clean and convenient for our weekend and the name does fit "Quiet Serenity Cottage". The parking spaces area was very dark at night but that adds to the serenity of the area. Overall the stay was great and we will always tell our friends and family to check out The Cottages at Wachesaw Plantation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and for staying at our cottage. We appreciate your comments and we do agree that the outside area during the night is dark. Although like you said, that adds to the ambiance of the plantation and the huge southern oaks. We do look forward to hosting you or your friends again at "Serenity".

I love the cottage, it works for us.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very nice, and we like where it is. This was the third year that we have stayed at the cottage. I come down for a conference this time every year. I don't know if It was me or the mattress but it did not sleep very well. Look and see how old the mattress is ,it may need to be changed out. Everything else was great. Looked for a muffin pan and did not find one. Will you please get one for the cottage. The unit was very clean and Sheila is very good to work with. We enjoyed our stay. Thanks.

Welcome to the historic fishing village of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, a quaint, little town full of history, beauty & colorful characters. Tucked away just 10 miles south of the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach, Murrells Inlet is a nature lover's paradise.

Here, you won't find flashing neon signs or roller coasters. In Murrells Inlet, you enter the quaint feel of a true fishing village, unspoiled by concrete and high rises. It's a place sought out by fisherman and naturists, whispered about by antique collectors, and revered by art lovers and horticulturists. It's the place where golfers come to relax, families come to dine and snowbirds come to retire.

Wachesaw Plantation is a private residential community were residents and guests enjoy long walks or riding bicycles along the quiet, paved streets. During your stay, our guests have access to the private Country Club pool complex and snack cabana. Also, enjoy a fine dining experience for lunch or dinner at the exclusive Kimbels restaurant with breathtaking views of the Intercoastal Waterway.

During your stay we recommend a visit to the Marsh Walk... there is so much to do there and fresh seafood markets of the daily catch. The Lazy Gator Gift Shop is a good place to shop.

We happened upon a wonderful restaurant the other day in Garden City Beach a few miles from the cottage... Gulf Stream Café.
